I’m so excited to be hosting the traveling teacup this week! I spent a very relaxing day with this special traveling teacup, now that it’s back in the PNW! Barbara, of Mantel and Table came up with the fun idea of sending a teacup to different parts of the country, for a Traveling Teacup Photo Challenge. For more about the story behind the traveling teacup, you can find all the details here.
I’ve been looking forward to this visit! After reading that Candace of Unfolding Beautiful named her guest teacup Rosie, I decided to call my traveling teacup “Tessa” during her visit with me.

A Cup of Morning Tea
We started the day by making some tea. I usually hang out in bed for a bit, catching up on Instagram, and a blog post or two.
Breakfast in the Garden
Next, we headed out to an area in the garden. There, we sat on a bench, enjoying a little breakfast. I even splurged by making muffins for the special occasion. We listened to the birds chirp,and watched the butterflies fly around the garden.
Teatime in the Greenhouse
I wanted to show Tessa, the traveling teacup, around the “Instagram famous” greenhouse. I think she approved.
Tea in the Rose Garden
I continued the relaxing tour by taking the traveling teacup to the picket fence garden beds, overlooking the Puget Sound. She fit in perfectly among the roses. I believe this was her favorite spot of the day! The weather was perfect for my special teacup guest!
I shared the importance of garden therapy with my new friend Tessa.
Unwinding on the Deck
What better way is there to end a relaxing day in the garden, then to enjoy a little gardening reading. Tessa and I watched the boats in the bay and took in the scent of the salt water before heading inside for the day.
By showing Tessa around, it gave me a chance to enjoy the weather, the gardens and some much needed relaxation. I tend to always be gardening or working on a project. But on this day, I spent quality time with the traveling teacup, just as I would have if any other guest had come for a visit. I absolutely loved the opportunity!
